Forgotten Kids Shows

Post by Zudo Bug » Mon Apr 30, 2007 5:09 pm

What kids shows do you remember from your childhood that have never been released on DVD would you like to see again?

How about this novelty from the early eighties.

Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors and also another classic Star Fleet have unofficially been released on DVD via RareTV.co.uk but these are just TV recordings transferred onto DVD. The quality isn't that brilliant but at least you get to see entire series of shows that DVD producers can't be arsed to release.

Check out their website at

Partly metal, partly real….
* sound of Tally Hawk cawing*
Sil-verrrr Hawks!

Wheeled Warriors – “explode into battle - Lightning Strikes!”

Oh, and - The “REAL” Ghostbusters. Not fake, but "REAL", damn it, REEEAAALLLL!! They're REAL because there were no apes in this one, I'm guessing.

Beetlejuice (the animated series, sillies)

....I'm drawing a blank now. Shoot, and I know there were others. :(
edit: help me out "Nemesis Scourge", what else was there?

I'm doubling up on the votes for:

Centurions
M.A.S.K.
Galaxy Rangers
Samurai Pizza Cats
C.O.P.S.

(Again, they're not all forgotten).

In addition:

Gargoyles
G.I. Joe (we don't have much of that in either Joe or 'Action Force' form here)

Oh, and more of:

Batman
Justice League
Fantastic Four (1990s)
Thundercats

The Ghostbusters one that wasn't the Real one. I liked that.

The Head -- was that ever released on DVD? I'd look it up, but I have no desire to do so. Fun show. Used to be on MTV, along with The Maxx (Possibly the most "baddddazzzz" cartoon ever). Wait. These shows weren't meant for kids? *Gasp* Glad my mum allowed me to watch whatever the **** I wanted to. I could name more, including shows I preferred -- alas, I have no desire to do so.

Oh, and someone mentioned StarCom. Now I have no memory of the show, but those toys kicked ass. They had magnets and stuff. And loads of 'em had dodgy moustaches, IIRC.

Nnn, I guess.....My memories of that one are bit fuzzy. Apparently you remember it, though.

Try harder, damn it!

Rescue Rangers..
I remember watching that pretty religiously in the winters..
alos, that was a great game on Nintendo. possibly a top-five deserted island game..

i really seem to have a lot of Tom and Jerry memories at the moment, and all i could think of was how much i would've liked to catch Jerry in a mousetrap.. he was a little bastard, that handsome mousy bastard...

(UK only)Children of the Stones and Sky (pronounced Sk-oye due to regional accent) and Raven. All live action and often at a deadly dull pace.

Hey, no one has mentioned Top Cat!

And, if we all remember them, surely they're not forgotten or some such philosophical type of thing?

Owning Inhumanoids on DVD I can assure you: its decidely average. The designs look like there were done by alcohol-fueled children. And the writing isn't exactly the hottest for a Marvel/Sunbow production...

Everyone should go buy 'Visionaries'.

Anyone remember a cartoon on C4 back in the day, that had an American Football team transported back to the time of King Arthur, along with some badies, who had to find golden keys (I think they were keys. Def golden though) in a particular prder for a particular person, in order to get back home?

You would be referring to King Arthur and the Knights of Justice. The team's quarterback was a bloke called Arthur King, and their foes were Lord Viper and his Warlords (Ax, Blind, Blackwing and a couple of others).
